Striking 8/10

Big and brutally powerful, Browne is a devastating striker. But unlike many of his counterparts in the heavyweight division, Browne is an impressively fluid athlete making his attacks on the feet all the more dangerous. Even though he didn’t take up combat sports until age 26 Browne is technically sound. His major drawback is his striking defense; he just gets hit way too much.

Wrestling/Grappling 8/10

Growing up playing basketball, Browne has great footwork and good hips; two important pieces to the grappling puzzle. That combined with his physical power has made Browne into an above average grappler. His takedown defense is top notch and he is more than capable of scoring takedowns of his own.

Submissions 7/10

Browne has some submission wins on his record but nothing about his skill set really jumps out at you. His physical tools are great weapons, but submissions are a thinking man’s game and Browne just isn’t that kind of fighter.

Athleticism/Conditioning 8/10

A converted basketball player, Browne is an incredible natural athlete. He has great awareness of spacing and range, excellent balance and quick feet; traits you see is NBA post players who rebound well. But like with most big men, Browne’s conditioning can be questionable at times.

Fight IQ 7/10

Browne is a fighter who wants to get in there and knock his opponent’s head off. While that is a great trait to have, he does so recklessly at times. Browne doesn’t have the best head movement to begin with but rather than protect that flaw he throws caution to the wind getting into the pocket with dangerous powerhouses. That’s simply not indicative of a smart fighter.

Overall 38/50
